Self Improvement And How Spas Help

September is Self Improvement Month. Soaking in hot water has many more benefits for our mind and body than we realize. Some of the most sought-after benefits of a good soak are stress relief and muscle relaxation. Let’s take a deeper look into the many ways soaking in hot water promotes whole body and mind wellness.

Stress Relief

Stress relief is one of the most obvious and sought-after benefits of having your own spa in your backyard. The combination of hot water and hydro-therapy from the jets can help relieve mental, emotional, and physical stress. You can enhance the stress-relieving effects by using aromatherapy, chromotherapy with colored lighting, and playing soft music.

Improved Sleep 

When your mind and body are relaxed, you sleep better. The buoyancy of the water helps to decompress your joints while your mind lets go of the day’s stress. Your circulation increases and your heart rate decreases, helping you reach a relaxed state. When you’re in the hot tub, your body temperature rises, but when you get out, your core body temperature drops as you cool down. This signals your body that it’s time to go to sleep. Take a 15-minute soak before bed for the most natural remedy to help you get a full night’s sleep.

Weight Loss 

Soaking in a hot tub for 15 minutes can burn up to 17 calories for an adult weighing 150lbs. While this isn’t enough by itself to lose weight, it helps you in your weight loss journey by soothing and rejuvenating tired muscles so you can get back to your workout, curbing cravings for sugary sweets brought on by stress, promoting better sleep, and better overall mental health. All of these benefits will help you keep better habits and ultimately succeed in your weight loss goals.

Pain Relief 

Soaking in a hot tub or spa can relieve pain from tense muscles, joints, and tendons. If you have arthritis, heat and hydrotherapy may decrease the stiffness and inflammation that causes pain. You will come out of the hot tub feeling rejuvenated and with less pain.

Quality Family Time 

Social interaction is critical for our well-being. It’s getting harder and harder these days to round up the family for dinner or fun activities. Having a hot tub can bring the whole family together, without their phones. You will learn new things about your family and have meaningful conversations that you wouldn’t… couldn’t otherwise have. Unplug and unwind after a long day, together.

Muscle Relaxation 

The hot water and massaging jets are a great way to soothe tight and tense muscles, also easing aches and pains. Sit in your favorite spot in the hot tub and feel the tension melt away.

Improved Circulation 

Experts say the hot water in your tub causes your blood vessels to open, which in turn lowers your blood pressure. The warmth of the water also encourages blood flow, allowing better circulation throughout your body.

Better Heart Health

Soaking in a hot tub can raise your heart rate and lower your blood pressure, giving it a good workout.

Better Overall Mental Health 

All of the aforementioned benefits contribute to a healthy mind. Keeping our mental health in good shape is so important and affects every area of our lives (and our loved ones) when we suffer. We could all do a better job of putting ourselves first and showing ourselves some love. A hot tub is a worthy, long-term investment for our health.
